[Spoken]
E
Hi, this is the big O, Otis Redding
E
I was just standing here thinking about you
E
Thought I'd write a song about you
E
And dedicate it to you
E
Take a listen:

[Verse]
       E
If you didn't go back to school this year
       A
You're really not groovy
          B
Maybe you feel that school is a drag
              E
It just don't move ya
            E                               A
But did you ever think about how square you look standing
        B                                   E
In an employment line because school didn't interest you
E
You really ought to think about it
           E                       A
Without an education you could only be a tramp
   B                           E
Brogan shoes, no haircut, just plain ol' country
      E                              A
Don't worry 'bout the fellows on the co'ner calling you green
              B                       E
Because you're getting your future condition
E
You really ought to think about it
            E                  A
And further mo' tell them that Otis Redding said you're very wise
               B
Because you'll be at the top
          E                     A
When they get there and if they make it
          E                     A
When they get there and if they make it
          E                     A
When they get there and if they make it
     E              A             E
You really ought to think about it
A
Think about it
E               A
Really ought to think about it
(Fade out...)

About the artist behind Stay In School:

Otis Ray Redding, Jr. (September 9, 1941 – December 10, 1967) was an influential American deep soul singer. According to the website of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (where he was inducted in 1989), Redding's name is "synonymous with the term soul, music that arose out of the black experience in America through the transmutation of gospel and rhythm & blues into a form of funky, secular testifying."[1]
